Putting the nectar in the sector
Making insurance careers more attractive
How can insurers attract quality graduates? This report addresses the common misconceptions graduates have about insurance and highlights the underplayed industry strengths insurers should use to better attract talent in the future.
In Ireland, despite the vast arrange of opportunities for graduates in the Insurance sector, the popularity of Insurance remains the fifth lowest of the 21 EMEA markets surveyed. Technology giants like Apple, Google and Facebook continue to dominate the employer ‘wish list’ for Irish graduates.
Talent is a critical issue for insurers and the global survey results show that unfortunately it remains an unpopular career choice. Our research has uncovered three major misperceptions about insurance careers:
- that they are a poor career platform
- they are domestically focused
- they lack innovation
These misperceptions appear to be putting off many graduates, but the good news is that there are a number of quick wins. Read the report to understand these misperceptions and how you can address them in order to better attract top talent.
